Mothers Smell Creates Phobia In Baby

Mothers Smell Creates Phobia In Baby

HNGN.com this week discusses new research that suggests babies can literally smell their mother’s fear and become phobic themselves.

Research has been initially completed on rats “The researchers observed mother rats who had learned to fear the smell of peppermint and found they “taught” this phobia to their offspring.”

This makes perfect sense as other recent research has found that human DNA maybe prone to become phobic of certain stimulus’s such as spiders. We also know how babies and young children learn from observational learning, copying the behaviour of their mothers or other adults in their life. These two factors as with the rats can be enough for babies to sense the fear of their parent to a certain stimulus and to take on this fear themselves.

Before they can even make their own experiences, they basically acquire their mothers’ experiences. Most importantly, these maternally-transmitted memories are long-lived, whereas other types of infant learning, if not repeated, rapidly perish,”

Once a neuropathway has been formed in the baby’s brain to create a fear response to a stimulus, the reaction is repeated with each fear/response stimulus until the phobia is created. Phobias are created so we can act automatic to a stimulus, often without consciously knowing we have reacted until after we have responded. Being able to respond without thinking is a life saving mechanism that is still used in humans today.
